Buggs Car Hire

insurance cover


Included in the price of your car hire is Standard Vehicle Insurance

Standard Vehicle Insurance consists of “Collision Damage Waiver“ (CDW) or “Fully Comprehensive” cover for the hirer and any additional drivers on the rental agreement

This insurance cover is for damage to the hired vehicle, theft/vandalism of the vehicle and a comprehensive 3rd party cover, but will carry an insurance excess payable in the event of any claim
 

The Insurance Excess on buggs cars are...

  • Group A cars 800€ 
  • Group B cars 1000€ 
  • Group C & E cars 1200€
  • Group D cars 1400€ 
     

It is strongly recommended that you purchase a Buggs Excess Protection option, which reduces the excess or eliminates the excess payable 

If you choose the Buggs Excess Protection, payment of the relevant insurance excess, in the event of any damage or insurance claim, will be reduced by 75%. The Buggs Excess Protection, does not include any damage to glass, wheels and tyres and vehicle undercarriage, for which the customer remains fully responsible and must reimburse Buggs in full

  • 10€ per day for Group A/B   12€ per day for Group C/D/E  

If you have chosen the Buggs Excess Protection Plus, payment of the insurance excess, in the event of any damage or insurance claim, will be waivered in full, additionally the cover includes damage to glass, wheels and tyres and vehicle undercarriage

  • 15€ per day for Group A/B   18€ per day for Group C/D/E

Please note, the loss, damage and replacement of keys is not included in either option and the customer remains fully responsible for all replacement costs 

If you choose not to accept either of the offered Buggs Excess Protection packages, then you will be liable to pay the Company the full Insurance Excess relating to the vehicle, in the event of an insurance claim or any damage to the vehicle

Additionally if you choose not to accept either of the offered Buggs Excess Protection packages then you may be requested to leave a deposit up to the value of the vehicle before the rental can begin

If you have a 'Third-Party' Excess waiver Insurance, then you are liable to reimburse Buggs first and then claim back later through your thrid-party insurer

If you do not have Excess Insurance of any kind, you are taking a huge risk, which could prove to be very expensive...not to be recommended
